Gustav Leu immigrated to the United States from Stettin, Germany some time between 1908 and 1909. July 19, 1913, he departed from Hamburg, Germany aboard the ship "Patricia" of the Hamburg-America Line. He was apparently visiting his homeland, as the ship's passenger list stated he resided in Detroit, Michigan, was a single man, and his occupation was said to be a "kaufmann".
When Gustav completed his W. W. I. Draft Registration Card on June 5, 1917, he stated he was born in Stettin, Germany, now part of Poland, on September 17, 1886. He was married, had three children, and resided with his family in Detroit, Michigan. Gustav was listed as a "declarent", as he was not yet a United States citizen. He was employed as a toolmaker for Kraetke Bros. Inc., a company owned and operated by Richard, Ernest, and William Kraetke. The Kraetke brother's mother, Wilhelmine Nageborn Kraetke, was an aunt of Gustav's wife, Alice Nageborn Leu. Gustave was of medium height and build, had brown eyes and hair, and had two crippled fingers.
Gustav resided in Detroit with his wife, Alice, and their four children, Anna, Helene, Gustav, and Kathleen.
